New mom

Thank you for such wonderful info!

I exclusively breast pumped until she was 2 months old. Supplementing once or twice a day with formula as it is tedious!

My baby never took my breast. My baby is four months now, can I once again start to produce breastmilk? I would really want to feed my baby my milk once again.

Thankyou

Breastfeeding again
by: Tracy

Hi

That's wonderful that you stuck in there. If you are still producing milk, you can definitely start breastfeeding again. Even if you where not producing milk, but this could make it a little more difficult.

You will have to just try getting baby to latch on, it might be a struggle in the beginning because now baby is accustomed to the bottle, the bottles flow of milk and so forth.

Using a supplemental feeding device can help get baby on the breast (read more about this here)


some mothers start breastfeeding their babies at 6 months. So it is possible. If you really want to do this, you can. It takes time and patience, but is worth it in the end.

Please let me know how it goes.
